Ok, so if more people lose their jobs and start collecting unemployment we will have more jobs? We have close to 10% unemployment, how much higher does the rate need to go so we will start creating jobs?
Also, I was talking to a friend a few weeks ago and she was telling me that her neighbor won't take a low paying job as long as he can get unemployment benefits. Sorry, Nancy those people do exist.
I live in area where unemployment is relatively low, and stores have help wanted signs in the windows. Again, they won't be great paying jobs, but a job nonetheless. Of course, the reason the unemployment rate where I live is low, is because the federal government is hiring like mad. Yet, I have met people who have been out of work for months. Work at the grocery store for a while, it is better than nothing. Yes, it will suck, but sometimes you have to suck it up and make do.
